I will say that the DC motor that transport the laser Assembly to read the info from the CD is defective or it could also be the plastic gears.
The only way to fix it, is to replace the whole assembly where the motor is mounted. You might be able to find this assembly without the laser assembly.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Most likely the lens mechanism / lens is faulty and would need to be replaced.

Have you tried cleaning the lens with some isopropyl alcohol and a q-tip? Sometimes the disc cleaners don't work and this does. You will need to open it up and try this. Also, this I presume happens on multiple cds, correct? Please let me know on this, you could also try cleaning the disc on the bottom with a soft cloth. Perhaps the player is dusty. Please try the above suggestion and let me know how it goes, thanks.

Hi,

Few troubleshooting steps you can try:

First try a hard reset by unpluging all the cords from the back for 30min and then plug it back in.IF this doesn't help then do the following:

Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.You can also restoe the settings to factory defaults by inserting a toothpick or a small paper click in thehole in the front..

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.

If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired.
Goodluck..

Toshiba DVD SD73000KU will not recognize ANY disk


hi
have you been tried to clean the lazer lens with a cd lens cleaner. if doesn't work you can do with manual cleaning using a fiber cloth moist with alcohol damped gently the laser lens which may be dirty causing not to detect a disc. now if those tries still doesn't work your last option to make an adjustment on the speed settings of the drive motor. at the lower portion of the lens their is a trimmer adjustment, you can used a small flat head screw driver then try to adjust the trimmer just a little bit counter clock wise, make sure the player is unplugged for safety. then try to plugged it and turn on the player, insert now a cd and observed. if the motor doesn't rotating, removed then check if worn out, replaced a new one if needed.this will worked now.
hope this will helped thanks for consulting the fixya.

CD player won't play after pressing the play button on all tracks


This problem is usually caused by dust or smog accumulating on the laser lens assembly. Unplug the unit and remove the top cover. Take a cotton swab and wet one end with glass cleaner. Wipe it gently across the lens (do not apply pressure). Use the other end of the swab to dry the lens. Reassemble the unit and test for skipping or non-playing discs.

Used lens laser lens cleaner & now player won't play.


You can open the dvd and try to clean it manualy.open the dvd so you can see the lazer.take a normal earbud and wet it with normal methylated spirits and clean the lazer gently with that.the lazer cleaners hardly ever work 100%.Just remember not to push to hard on the lazer or you will brake it.gently clean and wait for lazer to dry and try again.
